  • Where does STS store Grails Plugins?

    I have a Grails project and I want to move it to my new computer. For the life of me I can't find the project plugins. Where does the Grails project plugins get stored?

    You probably don't need to move your plugins. Just make sure to run "Refresh Dependencies" from the Grails Tools context menu (accessed by right-click on your project).

    But... if you must know where they are, they probably stored somewhere in your .grails folder ${user.home}/.grails. It is not really STS who stores it there, but Grails.

    However, the stuff in there is really only a kind of cache. What plugins you have installed should be completely determined by the files in your project itself, for example, and various .groovy files in the 'conf' directory.

    Doing a reresh dependencies should bring all of that cached state back in line with your project configuration files. (So plugins you installed will be downloaded again if they aren't already there).
